    What does "HTC" stand for?

    If the unit is manufactured by Siemens, what does the "HTC" abbreviation mean?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Excellent Question


    HTC is the name of a Taiwanese company that actually is the OEM manufacturer for these phones. A bit of trivia is that they also manufacture the iPaqs for HP (formerly Compaq). T-Mobile and O2 took on the branding themselves, but AT&T had the forethought to outsource a portion of that activity to a name that would be recognized by consumers... Siemens. So Siemens doesn't have anything to do with manufacturing them... it's a strange business. I wish that T-Mobile had done the same thing so that the phone had an identify. What will they call the next PocketPC Phone that they come out with? AT&T is all set... the can have an SX57 or some other model.

    Hi

    Oooohh... now I get it. Let me know if you are having trouble with staying logged in. I had some reports of that earlier, but I thought it was fixed. Thanks for coming out of the closet!

    I knew I needed a reason to use the new emoticons! That's nuts.
